Sir Thomas More
Born in 1478 and living for 57 years, St. Thomas More was a scholar, tutor to the future king, lawyer, family man, celebrated wit, and finally, Lord Chancellor of the realm. As the playwright Robert Bolt typed him, he was "a man for all seasons." Thomas More is a model of true servant leadership. He had everything and sacrificed it all on a matter of religious principle.
Thomas More was canonized a Saint in 1935. His feast day is observed on June 22. St. Thomas More was a person who loved life, but loved his God more. He was a fervent man of faith, a loyal countryman, an edifying professional, and a committed Catholic.
As the patron of our school, the intention is to reflect St. Thomas More's qualities in our school philosophy and programs. Hopefully, all of the students who attend St. Thomas More Catholic High School will, like Thomas More himself, mirror these same virtues of love, hard work, faith in God, loyalty to the Church, and educational scholarship.
